Our town now has three stores. A new storehouse built by Mr. R. W. T. Kellam was occupied by him at the beginning of the year and Mr. John Fox, is now the occupant of the one vacated by him.

A comfortable office has recently been built by Messrs. Kellam & Nottingham, agents for Styron's Combination Fence, insurance, fertilizers &c., and a thrifty business seems to be the outcome of their enterprise.

The hotel recently built in our town will receive a liberal share of patronage, if polite attention to guests, handsomely furnished bed rooms, and a good table have any attraction for the traveling public, and guests stopping there of late indicate that they are finding out that Mr. W. A. Bloxom is the right man in the right place. Among the guests this week were Mr. Henry Ames of Baltimore, Mr. Macey of New York, and John W. Corbin of Accomac C. H.
